Sample Text (from The Elephant's Child)
Elephant’s Child: But I feel I have to point out to you that you adults don’t always know what’s best
Hippopotamus & Baboon: (Together) Pardon?
Elephant’s Child: (Patiently) OK I’ll say it again. You adults don’t always know what’s best
Hippopotamus: We don’t?
Baboon: Do explain!
Elephant’s Child: Well, who was it that gave you the idea of getting a trunk?
Hippopotamus: Er, well
Bird: Ah! I think he has you there. You did all trundle off to the Limpopo River
Snake: For a nose job!
Crocodile: Courtesy of yours truly!
Snake: Yes, you can certainly take credit for that! Course there were a few ‘unsuccessful’ nose jobs
Crocodile: You mean, supper?
Snake: But let’s not dwell on that!
Hippopotamus: No. Let’s not! The majority of those elephants came back with highly successful nose jobs
Crocodile: All thanks to me!
Elephant’s Child: And you know the biggest plus of all this?
Bird: Do tell!
Elephant’s Child: It was that the spanking actually stopped! And I could
Henceforth lead a spank-free existence!
